Update 9 March 2022

Traffic Regulation Order Consultation

You will be able to participate in the consultation on the Traffic Regulation Order from 18 March 2022 onwards. You will be able to locate the project on https://norfolk.citizenspace.com/  and view all the associated documents.

Cellar investigation

Businesses in Harleston may be contacted from 14 March for information on cellars in their buildings. This is to ensure the project team have full information on the site in advance of any work commencing. 

Pavement investigation

During late March or early April a team will need to dig investigation holes / trenches in few locations along the pavements in Harleston. This disruption should only last for one day and the pavements will be clear once the team finishes work.

Update February 2022 

  • Following on from the consultation in Autumn 2021, the next step is a public consultation on the Traffic Regulation Order (TRO), planned for Spring 2022.
  • Subject to the approval of the TRO, works are expected to start early Summer 2022 and progress to completion by Autumn 2022. We will soon provide details of how you will be able to participate in the consultation which will be run by Norfolk County Council.
  • In the meantime, the project team at Norfolk County Council will be visiting Harleston to conduct preliminary site investigations, starting in February 2022.
